Who Is Uzume ?
The Shinto goddess of joy and happiness, Uzume is credited with returning sunlight to the world after the goddess of the sun, Amaterasu, went itnto hiding in a cave. Uzume  decorated herself with moss and leaves, lit bonfires, and made a stage from an upturned tub. Her inspired song and divine dancing so delighted the assembled gods that they roared in laughter, thus awakening the curiosity of the sun goddess. When Amaterasu peeked out to see the performance, sunlight burst forth and she was cured of her sadness, leaving the cave for good, Theatre Uzume hopes to bring a little light to our stage through the power of dance, theater, and music.
